Lisp is almost 50!
There'll be lots of interesting people there, including:
- John McCarthy the one to blame for the whole thing! ;-)
- Richard Gabriel and Guy Steele. Guy Steele is the one to be blamed for Java, Scheme and different revisions of the Jargon File.
- William Clinger editor of the Revised(5) Report on the Algorithming Language Scheme, and for the powerful Scheme hygienic macro system.
- Rich Hickey, responsible of the Clojure dialect of Lisp for the Java Virtual Machine.
And interesting birthday party, indeed.
A real pity I'm not visiting OOPSLA this year :-(
Happy Lisp-ing, Antonioblog comments powered by Disqus
